Big win also for Technology and Who so Ever
The Kennard Memorial Turf Club, Bush Lot Farm, Corentyne on Monday successfully held their annual Boxing Day Horserace meet. Once again it was the Jumbo Jet stable with their barrage of entries that dominated proceedings, winning four events.
Grande the Roja ridden by Jamaican Brian Blake came through with a timely run on the inside to eke out the slimmest of victory over stable mate Jet Set Go with Prem Chandra on the perch to take top honours in the feature B class event and run away with $1M and Deo Kharag trophy in the one mile event compliments of the Kharag Family, owners of Metro Computers and Office Supplies.
As the event started and the animals battled for position, it was the speedy Jet Set Go that broke away early, as it carried a blistering pace with the others in hot pursuit. As the animal headed for the finish line Blake rode Grande De Roja brilliantly as he pushed the animal all the way as it came through for the win.
The Judges and announcers had declared Jet Set Go as the winners and the presentation was done accordingly. However after some controversy and a recheck it was announced that Grande De Roja was the winner. One crazy cat and Face the Music placed third and fourth respectively.
Technology of the Elcock and P&P Syndicate Stables, with New York based jockey Sunny Singh in the saddle, showed that it is more advanced than its opponents and is the horse to Beat in the 3-yrs-old category for animals Bred and born in Guyana and the West Indies.
The horse for the second straight race came through with a blistering run down the middle to take top honours and $500,000 top money from Damascus Dream, Work Force and Face the Fire in the one mile event.
The Two year Old, six furlongs event for Guyana and West Indies Bred horses saw Serenity of the Jumbo Jet stable with Chandra on the perch turning the table on Settle in Seattle as Happy Choice and Rock Sonia rounded out the placing for the $400,000 winnings.
There was a big upset in the D and lower event as the newly imported Who So Ever out of the USA, owned by Dennis DeRoop and running its first race here, came through with a blistering finish to take top honours. Ridden by top jockey Yap Drepaul the animal whipped a high quality field to take the $400,000 winner’s money from Home Bush Baby, Got to go and Stormy Flame. I Want Revenge of the Jumbo Jet stable with Blake riding did just that in the Two Year old race for Guyana Bred Horses as it won from Watch My shadow and Blessing for the $300,000 top prize over six furlongs.
There was some controversy in the G and Lower 6 furlongs event with eventual winner Top of the line of the Jumbo Jet Stable with Daniel Flores in control and second place Miracle Run of the Elcock stable with Rupert Ramnauth in the saddle bumping each other just as Miracle run was about to pass as they headed for the line. There was an enquiry after by the stewards. The win was worth $300,000 as Bridal Stone Corner and Prado’s Gold rounded out the money.
Royal Champion owned, trained and ridden by Rupert Ramnauth continued its good showing with victory in the H class 7 furlongs race ahead of Wicked Intention, Sun Razor and Prospectors Pride for the $220,000 top money.
There was nothing funny in I1 and lower 6 furlongs event won by MR A. Gray Funny ahead of The Gump, Princess Renuka and Bounty Flyer for the $180,000 top money.
The I3 race saw Speed Vision, Miracle Silver, Natural Mystic and Nobody Knows occupying the top four positions and the win was worth $160,000.
The top four positions in the K and L event were occupied by Modern Cowboy, Sporting Time, Smarty Light and Prince Bayaya.
Jockey Prem Chandra was awarded the champion rider with Brian Blake the runner up. Trainer Sham ‘Short man’ Chattergoon of the Jumbo Jet stable was the top trainer as the Jumbo Jet stable rode away with the champion stable award, all compliments of the Trophy Stall, Bourda Market. Over 75 horses took part in the day’s activity which was incident free while close to $7M in incentives was up for grabs. (Samuel Whyte)
